Conference Time!

Posted in Writing with tags , , , , on July 16, 2008 by Evelyn le Bec

Well I have been away for awhile thanks to one of those annoying little faults that no one can find or believe is actually happening. It’s the PC. No it is the internet provider. No maybe it is the phone line.

What a time to come back. It is time for the Romance Writers of America Conference. What you aren’t going? Too expensive? You are not in the States? Then there is brilliant news for you. A conference that you can attend where ever you are in the World, we don’t even mind if you turn up in your PJs.

The Romance Divas annual Not Going to Conference Conference will make you feel a bit less deprived! Amazing workshops, a star-studded guest list and awesome giveaways, all on the Diva forum! Don’t miss it!

Well here we go for another year. All that gushy love stuff. :sigh: I am not immune, honest.

To prove it here is a free read. As part of the Romance Divas Valentines Day eBook Challenge. Please note that this book contains adult content and is non vanilla. It is a M/f with graphic language.

After submitting in cyberspace for sometime, it is now time for Lynn to meet her Master. The decision needs to be made, does she submit completely?

Submit To Love

Hi everybody. This is a nice new blog, about my journey to become a published author. Looking at all the stuff life throws at you along the way.

I will also be talking about anything that takes my fancy and fires my imagination. Maybe throw in a few reviews here and there, and if you are very lucky some freebies, interviews and guest authors.
